    Default OFFLINE GPS for my iphone 6

    Hello Guys, im writing to see if you guys can clear some of my doubts and can help me so i can make a decision.
    My Garmin Nuvi finally gave up!! after some use and abuse, it finally gave up!! i really think it is time to "advance" with technology and get a GPS app for my iphone and use my phone as a GPS.
    Ive been reading a LOT, but there are some questions that i still have in my mind. After a lot of research i think this the best forum to get the help i need.
    I currently live in Spain, so i will be using maps of Europe.
    After everything i have read, i have decided that i will either get the NAVIGON app, or the GARMIN GPS STREET PILOT. I am very used to the Garmin interface and i don't want to switch to something totally different like TOMTOM or something like that.
    I will enumerate the doubts i have, and hopefully you guys can respond to my questions.
    I would appreciate if you could help me clear my mind about how this 2 apps work regarding the following questions.

    1) are both of the apps offline apps??? if i travel to other country, will i be able to use them without using any data plan??

    2)i have read everywhere that the app itself, plus the maps, can take up to 3 gb of my memory. According to the IOS APP STORE both apps, in the European version, have the maps of most of the European countries. i understand that with the purchase you get the "pack" of "ALL THOSE MAPS" . The question is, can i download ONLY the map that i need?? for example, since i live in Spain, can i download ONLY the Spain map?? and if i am going to travel to another county, download the country that i will be visiting??

    3) since the device is a cell phone, i would assume that with either app, i would be able to take a phone call while using it as a gps??

    4) i have my iphone connected to my car through Bluetooth in order to play music, can i still play music while using the device as a gps??

    5) how do i know that neither of the 2 apps are using my data to navigate?? i just want to make sure that while i am driving, my data is only being used to receive a whatsapp messages or whatever i want. i just DON'T WANT none of my data plan to be used by the gps.. is it possible with the 2 apps?? how is the process to "prevent" the app from using my data plan??

    6 )At around 60 or 70 usd, neither of the 2 apps is cheap. Can i download it in my wife's Iphone as well?? She has her own Apple ID.. if she sings in in her phone with my Apple Id to download it, and once it is downloaded in her phone, she signs back in with her own Apple Id, will the 2 apps work properly??? will she have any restrictions??

    7)which of the 2 apps is better for pedestrians??

    8) i assume that if i get a new iphone, all the info that i have stored about pois will be there when i download it again in my new device?? and i also assume that i wont have to pay again and i can download the apps as many times as i want right??


    As you guys can see, most of my questions are related to how the apps perform, because i have seen lots of videos and i have read tons of reviews and i know both apps are pretty good doing their required job. My questions are mainly about switching from a gps only unit, to using my phone as a gps
    I tried to be as clear as possible so you guys can understand my questions. English is not my primary language, so i apologize for all the English mistakes that i have made.
    Thank you all in advanced for taking the time to answer my questions and help me take a decision about which app to buy!!
    Feel free to ask anything if you need to!!

    If you are going to buy the app it is better you ask Apple or Navigon support.
    On forum you can find them both but sometimes cracked apps act differently than legal apps regarding working features.
    You can download from here for testing before buying.
    Post in related threads if you have doubts.

    At my iPhone 6S I tried all that apps you say.... but I finally use: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    After first install, make a sing in (for save your favorites waypoints) and download (with WiFi) only the country (or more countries) you want every time to use!

    Your favorites stored and when you sing in from another device you will see them there (other phone, iPad or laptop)

    Only online traffic and view as google earth, it will use internet... For only see the map (classic view) don't use any data at all

    With that map I have the best calculation, it finds ALL address that I have searce last 1,5 year that I use it. Here WeGo never missed anything!

    I can answer or call while I use it and at the end it continue navigation without any problem

    The app is 74MB and map of Greece (for me) is only 300MB

    The BEST app I' ve ever use at my iPhone!!!! Try it! It's FREE!!!!

    Greetings

    as i said i am planning on buying the app. i want something that will work the wat it is supposed to work!!
    when you say i should ask, garmin or navigon supoort, you mean write this question in the navigon and garmin forum INSIDE [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] i thought of doing that, but since i am talking about the mobile apps, i thought this was the forum that the question had to be placed in!!

    No I mean ask Navigon or Apple site presale support because as I wrote sometimes cracked apps act differently than legal apps regarding working features.
    Otherwise test cracked apps posted on forum or ask in related threads.
    I cannot help because I don't use Apple phones sorry, Android only.

    Maps.me is a good offline map. It's free & available on both android & ios.
